Abstract

We describe a case of peanut aspiration resulting in distal tracheal impaction. Due to an inability to ventilate the patient, we utilized emergent cardiopulmonary support with a dialysis catheter to allow removal of the aspirated fragments. This is the first reported case using the emergent cardiopulmonary support circuit for foreign body aspiration. Herein, we describe the teaching points from this case and provide flow guidelines for the available catheters.
